  • Offshore Wind Project Case

    Offshore wind energy is an innovative approach to addressing climate change and the global energy crisis. Although many projects have begun, there are currently no offshore operational projects in the United States. Through the case study of the failed Cape Wind project, we can better understand the importance of integrating aspects of land use planning, environmental impact assessments, and historical and human considerations when designing a project like an offshore wind plant. Furthermore,…

  • Factors: What Is A Renewable Energy?

    desirable. What is a solar updraft tower power plant?? A solar updraft tower takes heat from the sun, stores it and converts it into usable energy when needed[1]. Parts of the tower??? The tower consists of three parts: a collector, chimney and wind turbine generators [2]. Collector The hot air for the tower is produced here and is usually made from glass or plastic. The ground under the collector is heated causing the air to move up towards the chimney[3]. Chimney The air rises and the…

  • Analysis Of EAHE In Gas Turbine

    A comprehensive performance analysis of an EAHE could supply great help for the design and application of EAHE in gas turbine. At first the soil temperature at different depth along the year was evaluated to determine the optimum depth for high performance and low economical cost. Then the effect of structural factors including the pipe length and inner diameter, in addition the effect of air velocity passing through the pipe on the performance were studied. The air temperature at the inlet of…

  • Wind Energy Paragraph

    Persia used windmills to grind grain and pump water about 500-900 A.D. Eventually the windmill lead to the creation of the first wind turbine, invented in 1888 in Cleveland, Ohio, by a Scottish scholar named Charles F. Brush [1]. A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy gained from the wind into electrical energy [2], and a collection of wind turbines in one place is referred to as a wind farm. Today, wind energy contributes only 4.7% of the energy generated in the United States,…
